TY - CHAP A1 - Jianwen Xu A2 - Jie Song ED1 - Reza Fazel-Rezai Y1 - 2011-08-01 PY - 2011 T1 - Thermal Responsive Shape Memory Polymers for Biomedical Applications N2 - In all different areas in biomedical engineering, the ultimate objectives in research and education are to improve the quality life, reduce the impact of disease on the everyday life of individuals, and provide an appropriate infrastructure to promote and enhance the interaction of biomedical engineering researchers. This book is prepared in two volumes to introduce recent advances in different areas of biomedical engineering such as biomaterials, cellular engineering, biomedical devices, nanotechnology, and biomechanics. It is hoped that both of the volumes will bring more awareness about the biomedical engineering field and help in completing or establishing new research areas in biomedical engineering.
